Nightly Recap - Lookin' Sharp

Phoenix 1 - Los Angeles 0 - In Ilya Bryzgalov's Coytoes debut he showed why he should be a #1 goaltender making 28 saves to shut out the Kings. On the other end Jason LaBarbera held his own, stopping 37. Shane Doan scored the games lone goal.

Montreal 7 - Boston 4
- Carey Price is now 5-1-1 to begin his rookie campaign. Montreal had seven goals scored by seven players, and had six players with multiple point nights (Chipchura, Hamrlik, Koivu, Markov, Ryder, Streit). Tim Thomas got blasted for 52 shots, he was only able to stop 45,
theres only so much one guy can do! Glen Murray and Marc Savard had three points each.

Chicago 5 - Detroit 3 - Chicago is now 4-0 on the season, Patrick Sharp made it rain hats tonight, scoring three in the third period.

Toronto 3 - Ottawa 0
- In the upset of the night, Bryan McCabe and Thomas Kaberle had two assists each and rookie Jiri Tlusty scored his third of the night, it was not by showing the goaltender his penis. Vesa Toskala made 24 saves for the shutout

New Jersey 6 - Philadelphia 2 - Martin Brodeur won his 500th career game, Zach Parise had a goal and two assists.

Carolina 2 - Florida 1 - Rod "the bod" Brind'Amour scored both goals for the Canes and Cam Ward stopped 27.

New York Rangers 4 - Pittsburgh 3 (OT) - Jason Strudwick scored the game winner in OT on a pretty pass from Paul Mara, it was Strudwick's first points of the year. Jaromir Jagr played 22:26 minutes, and did not register a point or a shot on goal, Martin Straka is close to returning which could ignite Jagr. Michal Roszival scored two goals for the Rangers and Sidney Crosby extended his point streak to 19 games. The Penguins club record is 45 by Super Mario.

St Louis 3 - Nashville 2 (SO) - Brad Boyes scored the only goal in the shootout, and also spanked one in during regulation. Hannu Toivonen made 35 saves for the Blues, rookie David Perron scored his 5th goal of the year, he has 5 points in his past 4 games.

Calgary 3 - Edmonton 1 - After losing five straight the Flames have now won two in a row. Owen Nolan and Matthew Lombardi each had a goal and an assist. Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 15 in the win. (As a blogger I must say Miikka is my favourite name to type out)

Anaheim 2 - San Jose 1 (SO) - Corey Perry scored the lone shootout goal for the Ducks, Evegni Nabokov and J.S. Gigeure both stopped 28 of 29 during the game. Goals by Chris Kunitz and Torey Mitchell. After a slow start, Anaheim is now on a 4 game win streak and is 6-1-1 in November.
